The major difference between islam and all the other religions you list is that only the islamics are currently attempting to force their "religious" views on others.
Uh, I guess you don't know about the "Army of God" in Uganda.
They are certainly trying to force their "religious views" on others, to the tune of having massacred thousands of non-believers, and ambushing more every day who do not agree with their literal interpretation of the Bible and Jesus' life.
Of course I'm sure this doesn't count, because it's "somewhere else", just like the Inquisition doesn't count because it was "sometime else" and just like the Salem Witch Trials doesn't count because it was "over there", and just like the people in Delaware who are harrassing the lone Jewish boy in their school district.
“We have a way of doing things here, and it's not going to change to accommodate a very small minority,' said Kenneth R. Stevens, 41, a businessman sitting in the Georgetown Diner. “If they feel singled out, they should find another school or excuse themselves from those functions. It's our way of life.”
Got it? The Islamists are getting the headlines at the moment, but Christians (and other religions) are just as good at trying to force others to kowtow, too.
Here's what's going on in DELAWARE today:
A state representative spoke in support of prayer and warned board members that "the people" would replace them if they faltered on the issue. Other representatives spoke against separating "god and state."
A former board member suggested that Mona Dobrich might "disappear" like Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the atheist whose Supreme Court case resulted in ending organized school prayer. O'Hair disappeared in 1995 and her dismembered body was found six years later.
The crowd booed an ACLU speaker and told her to "go back up north." [North of Delaware?]
In the days after the meeting the community poured venom on the Dobriches. Callers to the local radio station said the family they should convert or leave the area. Someone called them and said the Ku Klux Klan was nearby.
Classmates accused Alex Dobrich of "killing Christ" and he became fearful about wearing his yarmulke, the complaint recounts.
